Blurring out names/logos in SD project - what tool to use?
on Aug 18, 2014 at 1:46:17 pm

Hi, guys!

So, when nearly finishing updating an old SD project, the client throws in that they wish to blur out company names/logos and name bagdes on people wearing suits in the film.

I have never done this before, just blurring out objects when the camera is still.

If anyone has suggestions for tools solving this, I'd be very glad! The logos might appear on several places in the sequences (for example two persons wearing a suit where either/or both name badge and company logo is visible).

I guess the easiest (but most time-consuming) way is to duplicate the clip, place it on top of the original one and then somehow add a mask with blur. Then keyframe movement of the mask? Not sure how that's done, though...

I do have Motion, but after some reading I figure it might take longer to understand how to work with Motion? Or perhaps I can make the blurring much quicker and better in Motion, once I get the hang of it?

So, I'd be very happy for inputs on this one!
